Preventative Medicine Q & A

What is preventive medicine?

Dr. Escobar applies his expertise toward promoting good health in his patients. The goal of preventive medicine care is to prevent untimely disease, disability, and death. Simply put, preventive health care promotes your optimal well-being.

What services are part of preventive medicine practices?

Dr. Escobar uses preventive care to help you maintain good health or improve your current health. Preventive medicine is about more than treating your symptoms. Rather, it focuses on improving your overall health to prevent symptoms and disease from occuring in the first place. 

Preventive care includes examinations and screening tests. These are customized to the patient’s age, family history, and personal health history. Screenings are valuable because they detect problems before they escalate and cause serious complications. It’s far easier to treat disease in its earliest stages.

Dr. Escobar provides the following preventive care services:

  • Cancer screenings
  • Immunizations
  • Annual wellness visits
  • Women-specific screenings and exams
  • Hormone analysis

Laboratory testing offered on-site at JEE Healthcare can detect chronic disease, like diabetes or high cholesterol. Dr. Escobar can then provide services to manage these long-term conditions and prevent them from causing serious problems later on. 

Why should I seek preventive medicine care?

You benefit from preventive medical care if you’re at risk of developing serious conditions like high blood pressure, heart disease, or diabetes. Your risk is greater if you’re overweight, obese, or have a genetic link to these diseases. 

Dr. Escobar can give you recommendations for making the necessary lifestyle adjustments to reduce your risk and avoid disease. He may give you dietary advice and exercise guidance. You can also receive support to quit smoking or curb excessive alcohol use. 

How is preventive care provided?

Dr. Escobar tailors your preventive care to your personal history, age, and health concerns. Preventive care is not a one-size-fits-all prescription. 

If you see other specialists for your health, Dr. Escobar can coordinate care and ensure all practitioners are united in ways that support your long-term health and well-being.
